A)
$A(adj A) = (adj A )A =|A|$
$A (adj A) =\begin{bmatrix} |A| & 0 & 0 & ... & 0\\ 0 & |A| & 0 & ... & |A| \\ ... & ... & ... & ... \\ 0 & 0 & ... & ... & |A| \end{bmatrix}$
$A (adj A) =\begin{vmatrix} |A| & 0 & 0 & ... & 0\\ 0 & |A| & 0 & ... & |A| \\ ... & ... & ... & ... \\ 0 & 0 & ... & ... & |A| \end{vmatrix}$
$|A| |adj A|=|A|^n$
$|adj A| =|A|^{n-1}$
Hence 3 is the correct answer.
